HIGH PRICES IN BRATTLEBORO. Many housekeepers In Brattleboro are beginning to b worried about the price of farm supplies, such as potatoes, ap ples and eggs. Potatoes aro now selling for SO cents a bushel at retail and the supply comes mostly from tho Maine crop was harvested around this part of country, probably enough to supply the local denund, but many farmers are holding their crop for an advance In price. Apples are soiling at from $2.25 to $2.50 n barrel. Thn crop was rather small, so small, in fact, that hardly a parrel Is being shipped away, nnd buy ers have not considered It worth their while to go through this part of tho country. It Is thought by local grocers however, that tho farmers aro holding the crop to take advantage of the bet ter prices later In the season. Eggs are the most scarce ot all. For some reason tho hens here abouts have been shirking their du ties for some time ps.st. Not enough eggs nro brought in from surrounding country to supply the demand nnd gro cers havo been obliged to fill their or ders with co.d storage eggs. The prices ot native eggs ranRu from 3? to 41 cents a dozen. One housewife offered 0) cents a dozen for eggs gaurnnteed to be fresh and wa-s unable to obtain them. ONLY ONE AT LIBERTY NOW.
